Alright guys so I bought one for my 29 gallon yesterday. In the LFS tank, bag, and when first introduced to my tank, he was extremely active swimming all over the place. However last night when I got back from work, I found him buried completely under the sand, only is barbels were above it, and eventually those went under too! lol
At the end of the night I came back and saw the same situation, but in a different part of the tank. This morning he was out of the sand, but sitting motionless behind a rock structure in the back of the tank, then against the filter intake. When I nudged the intake to make sure he hadn't gone to the fishy place in the sky, he started and swam about a foot to the front of the tank, where he is currently sitting. My question is: Why is he being so placid? My aquarium doesn't really have any place for him to hide, I bought two small logs anticipating smaller bottom dwellers, but the Dojo caught my eye. I plan on buying a long thin piece of rock and angling it so the back of the rock is in the sand, while the front slowly rises in the front, to give him a place to hide. Do you think that will make him more comfortable, or should I add other bottom dwellers/Dojos to give him some pals? Thanks guys!
